Could anyone please link me (I've search and searched and could not find a suitable document) or let me know the difference/pro-cons between

Classic and modern view on sharepoint online?

Is classic view going to be taken away in short while?

Thank you so much!

The following page may answer some of your questions about the difference between the classic UI and the modern UI.

The main difference between the 2 being that the modern UI is receiving new features and will eventually be migrated to in future versions.




Jeff Teper (Corporate Vice President - Office, OneDrive & SharePoint) stated recently on Twitter that Classic view will not be going away any time soon.
